We're left reeling after learning we have scooped two top awards in one swoop!
We were delighted to win two awards at the recent In-Cumbria Business Awards!
First of all, judges announced that our five-star park, located near the shores of Windermere, had taken first place in the Best Family Business of the Year category.
After collecting the first trophy, we were invited back on stage again and told we had also clinched another golden honour. This time, the judges announced that our park had triumphed in the Green/Ethical Business of the Year category, beating hundreds of other eligible enterprises to the title.
We were rather knocked for six when we realised that we would be taken two trophies home! We couldn’t have won the two awards without our amazing team, including Abi and Jack who play a very important part in the running of Park Cliffe, and the Family Business Award is a credit to how much they make this a real team effort.
Abi, Jack and the rest of the Park Cliffe team share a strong love for the natural world and our ethos to make the holidays we offer at Park Cliffe as green and environmentally friendly as possible. This is why we’re especially proud that our efforts to make the park a wholly sustainable business have been recognised by the award judges.
Set in the 25 acres of countryside above the shores of Windermere, Park Cliffe provides holiday homes to rent and own, glamping facilities, and pitches for tents, touring caravans and motorhomes.
Last year, we welcomed local MP Tim Farron to officially open a major new green energy project undertaken at Park Cliffe.
Representing a £200,000 investment, it features over 200 high-efficiency solar panels which will save 21 tonnes of carbon from entering the atmosphere each year.
The installation, known as a solar array, is capable of generating around 100Kw of power, and is designed to produce electricity even on the most overcast of days.
The project was a very important step in our journey to carbon neutrality, and it became even more significant as the switch-on ceremony was attended by regional tourism chiefs and other VIP guests.
We have more green initiatives planned for 2024, including reducing our carbon footprint and to protecting our indigenous wildlife and native plants.
